This is book number 1 in the The Missing series.
One day at an airport, a plane appears out of thin air...and its only passengers are 36 babies. When they become teenagers, they start receiving mysterious letters that tell them they're "one of the missing," and so begins Chip and Jonah's mission to uncover the secrets of their past. The perfect page turner for any young reader!

* "In a tantalizing opener to a new series, Haddix taps into a common childhood fantasy--that you are really the offspring of royalty or famous people, and were somehow adopted by an ordinary family--and one-ups it by adding in time travel...Readers will be hard-pressed to wait for the next installment."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Haddix admirably balances the exposition necessary to shape the first novel of a series while still providing enough life-threatening situations, governmental intrigue, and futuristic weaponry to make this an action-packed stand-alone novel. Readers will surely return for future installments...Science fiction and adventure fans will find much to enjoy in this flashy, suspensful volume."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Fans of Haddix's Shadow Children books will want to jump on this time-travel adventure...The author grabs the readers' attention from the first scene...intriguing enough...to keep kids reading what promises to be an exciting trip through history."--Kirkus Reviews
"As in her Among the Hidden series, Haddix once again demonstrates her talent for penning page-turnes kids will like."--Booklist
"Haddix's latest science fiction series starts off with a bang in this nail-biter...This book's exciting premise and cliff-hanger ending will leave readers on the edge of their seats and begging for more."--School Library Journal
